It's free to visit this organic, working farm on the edge of Paignton.

Open to the public 7 days a week, it includes a Farm Shop and Cafe serving local produce and a wonderful kitchen garden with a wartime allotment and air raid shelter. You can see farm animals including cows, sheep, goats, chickens, pigs and alpacas, and walk a lovely 2km nature trail with a bird hide.

The farm is run by local charity Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust with all profits going to support its conservation and education work.

The Trust run an events programme at Occombe and it's other sites, so please check the website for details of what's going on before you arrive. Free parking!

We've been to Occombe farm a number of times and my family and I love to spend time with the animals on the farm - last time there were new born calves and shaggy cows to get up close with. The nature trails are good fun although wellies are recommended if the weather has been wet recently. We've not tried... More

Poor today. Had poached egg on toast. As the menu said one egg on two slices of toast, oh and a rasher of bacon that was hard as anything. Correction it was appalling! My wife had mushroom on toast and she too had one field mushroom on two slices of toast. The toast was not even buttered properly. Not going... More

We stopped at the cafe to have lunch.... More

Bird hide part way round walk where you can observes birds feeding (and squirrels picking up the scraps). Various animals to be seen, and there is a pleasant farm shop and cafe, and a play area for the kids. As... More

The food is average and the wait on on reasonably quite day was inexcusable. A little expensive too. Great location so get your act together.
